Domestic Gas Installation
- Does Arugas provide home gas installations?
Of course, Arugas has an experienced team ready to do the installation for you at a good price. For more information, please contact us at 585-1198 or e-mail us at [email protected].
- How much does a home gas installation cost?
The cost of installation depends on the distance of the cylinder from the kitchen or dryer, how many cylinders you’re going to need, and if you choose to do the installation above or underground. Contact our installation department at 585-1198 and our team will stop by your house to give you an offer.
- What’s the difference between a gas installation above ground and one that’s underground?
The above-ground installation is the most common one, and this should be chosen if you want your gas installation close to your kitchen or laundry room. In this case, the pipeline will remain visible and runs from your gas installation to the point of connection with your appliance. An underground installation is not visible and is chosen mostly when the gas installation is located further away from the kitchen or laundry room. In this case, the copper pipeline is placed in a PVC or Polyethylene tube that runs underground and connects your gas installation to your kitchen. If you pick the underground installation, please note that Arugas does not dig the hole for the pipeline. An above-ground installation is cheaper than an underground one. Contact our installation department at 585-1198 and we can assist you in choosing the correct option for your house within your budget.
- How long does it take for my installation to be completed?
Most installations are completed within 1 day. This depends on the complexity of the installation.
- Does my gas installation need approval before I can receive gas?
Yes, Arugas will inspect the installation at your home and if everything is installed correctly, gas will be provided without a problem.
Commercial Gas Installations
- When is a gas installation considered commercial?
A commercial installation is a gas installation for a company e.g. hotels, restaurants, bakeries, or laundries. This can also include an apartment complex of 3 or more apartments, which are also considered commercial installations. All commercial installations must comply with DTI’s rules. DTI and Arugas adhere to the standards of NFPA 58 and other local regulatory standards. DTI decides the location of the tank, and Arugas works with them to provide the best service for our commercial clients.

Arugas does not charge for this service, so contact us so we can come check and help you with your commercial installation today!
- How much does a commercial gas installation cost?
The cost of a commercial installation depends on where the tank is going to be installed, along with the total consumption of gas (BTU) that is projected for the business. The total consumption influences the size of the tank that is required. To get your total costs, contact our installation department at 585-1198 or via e-mail at [email protected] and they will guide you through the process and give you your costs.
- What tank sizes does Arugas offer?
For small businesses, there’s an option for a 100-pound cylinder instead of a tank. Arugas has tanks of 50,100,250,500, 1000 gallons. The better option for you depends on the consumption of the business. Our experts can help you decide which tank is the best fit for your business.
- Do I have to pay for the installation of the gas tank at my business?
If your business uses the 100-pound cylinder, you have to pay a deposit for the cylinder of AWG. 125 per cylinder.

We work diligently to serve our clients, but we want to remind you that gas is a dangerous substance, and we must make sure our delivery process is completed as safely as possible.
